New Line of Cat Toys
« on: July 10, 2013, 08:43:33 AM »
Catimus (bottom photo) inspired me.  She's got a toy we call her roadkill because it's a completely unstuffed, flat squirrel.  It's her favorite.  But when I was knitting the hippo scarf and doing the i-cord for the tail, she WOULD NOT LEAVE ME ALONE.  So I made her a toy.  Flat + i-cord, about 10" total.  I rubbed it with organic catnip and she LOVES it.

So I made some more to sell.

We're actually growing organic catnip in a window box, so this gives me a use for it.  I'm storing the toys and shipping them with a few of the leaves.  Hunter likes them too (top photo).

Cute!


Mance's favorite toy is a pair of felt chocolate chip cookies I made for the kids' kitchen set.  He is a ferocious beast about them  ;D

my daughters late cat was in love with my daughter's barbie!  I think it was the hair, but she carried it around with her, rolled on it, and hugged it.


I think these are great, I'll have to get one for my new baby.

Ha!  Catimus grooms us a bit too, but our skin.  Every once in a while, she'll just walk up and lick an elbow or the back of a hand.  She's weird.

They are so cute! I think the grooming thing is more they like the salt on your skin. All of our dogs did that on a pretty regular basis and especially if you've been sweating. Or they just love you! ? :)
